Graduate School and Research Center In communication systems

Master in Data science and engineering

 Applications for 2017-2019 Intake will be resumed in October 2016.

 

DESCRIPTION 

 

The “Big Data” phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage and processing. An increasing volume of data are daily produced by modern day industrial processes (in fields such as energy, intelligent transport systems, aviation industry and many others…), and fuelled by the rise of multimedia tools and the Internet of Things in our daily life.

 

The Master in Data Science and Engineering aims at combining computer and statistical sciences to develop cutting-edge and fundamental tools to efficiently address applied issues related to data processing. Beyond its importance in scientific research and industry, data analysis helps develop methods, algorithms and software able to extract value out of huge masses of heterogonous data with several dimensions. The curriculum offers a cohesive blend of technical classes in data mining, software engineering, distributed systems coupled with fundamentals in Business, Innovation and Project Management to develop profiles which are highly valued by corporate recruiters.

 

ADMISSION 

Please refer to the application guide. Applications are to be made online. EURECOM does not charge application fees.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A Bachelor's degree (minimum 3 years of higher education) with high academic records in a relevant field is required: computer sciences, telecommunications, applied mathematics, electrical engineering...
  • A B2 level in English or equivalent is required. No prerequisite in French are expected as the courses are entirely taught in English.

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

A flexible curriculum: Students need to validate a certain amount of credits per Teaching unit each semester, it means students can design their own curriculum by choosing the most relevant courses in the list below.
